Above and beyond what we had expected!

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Beautiful ship and crew went above and beyond their duties.

Pros: The ship was immaculate and the crew was extremely friendly!

Cons: Too short of time in some ports.

Recommends Costa Mediterranea? Yes!

Catalina Island (Isla Catalina), Dominican Republic
Nice BBQ and beach. Lots of people. Nice afternoon before going back on the ship.
Nassau, Bahamas
Very close shopping district. Walking, no taxi to the area. We didn't go on any of the tours. We thought we would go over to the Atlantis but we heard we could only go into the casino. Why bother to take a tour if we can only gamble.
San Juan, Puerto Rico
Too little of time in port. We took the night tour of the city. Some liked it but we had a guide that didn't give a lot of information. Just take a taxi and save the packaged tour. I hear the Bacardi tour was fun. You arrive at night, so some shops start to close.
Don't Miss: Old San Juan

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
We took the St. Johns snorkeling and beach tour. Well worth the time on the ferrie and the water was beautiful. This limited our time back in St. Thomas but we shot in to town quickly. Maybe it had been better to shop at the stores across from the pier.
Don't Miss: St. John's beach, Caneel Bay
Casa De Campo, Dominican Republic
We went horseback riding and Jeep tour trip. Not exactly the most interesting port. The Jeep tour was a wild ride but horseback riding was a nice day spent on shore. We all got back in time to go to the private island (Catalina) for BBQ and beach time.
